Being someone whose idea of a good, stiff drink is a cold Diet Coke, I am often amused by the pervasiveness of alcohol in our social culture, and I am espeically amused by the names of cocktails. For today’s poem, use a list of drink names (this is just one of many you can find online) and copy down 5 or 6 phrases. Here are 6 of my favorites from the linked site:
Milk of Amnesia
Try to write a poem using at least three of the phrases but NOT as the names of drinks.
If you want a bit more of a challenge, write the poem ABOUT drinking, but still using the phrases in another context.
